An “English-style” black comedy
When two opposing brothers are accomplices in a murder, they will do everything to cover their tracks so as not to get caught. Luckily, the old man, with terminal cancer, didn’t have many families.
But when Jake, the youngest, forgets his wallet in the deceased’s house, their plan is greatly compromised. To make matters worse, he falls in love with his niece, who begins to wonder if her uncle’s death is really natural. Little by little, the two brothers will get bogged down in their lies …
Composed of only 4 episodes, Little secret between brothers is a quirky policeman as the British know so well how to do it which is mainly based on the relationship between the two brothers. On the one hand, we have Max, the authoritarian elder who succeeds in everything. On the other, we have Jake, the immature little brother who never really grew up. The duo will have to join forces to protect each other.
On the casting side, Mark Bonnar, seen in Quiz and Catastrophe, and Jamie Sives, who we could discover in Game of Thrones where he camped Jory Cassel, lend their features to the two brothers. Ruth bradley (The Fall, Humans) plays Angie Curtis, the old man’s niece.
Little secret between brothers to meet a great success across the Channel, allowing the series to be renewed for a second season which should arrive in the coming months on the BBC. An Indian remake is also in production.
